Wednesday, August 31 LA Art Tours The world’s largest Arts Colony is right here in Los Angeles. 27 acres. 13 Buildings. Hundreds of unique studios and lofts housing over 300 artists.

Friday, September 2 and Saturday, September 3 Improvatorium’s – pure improv Improvatorium is at it again! The company that brought you “Zombience” and “Hitchcocked,” brings you two weekends of hilarious short form improv at Theatre Asylum. In a town awash with Long Form, Cage Matches, Teams and Competitions, Improvatroium dares to stick out its improvisational neck to return to improvised scenes, songs, extended scenes, and maybe one or two of those traditional improv “games” that are now almost considered retro!
Friday, September 2 to Thursday, September 8 THE AFTERLIGHT In a haunting and beautiful countryside, a young couple hopes to start a new life. Andrew and Claire find themselves far from their roots.
